Rambus (RMBS) "willfully" destroyed documents that could have been used in its IP dispute with Korea's Hynix Semiconductor, a District Court judge has ruled, although he said that Rambus' patents were still valid. Judge Ronald Whyte didn't set a penalty for the U.S. company, although Hynix expects the ruling to "substantially limit" the royalties it will need to pay Rambus for infringing the latter's IP. (PR)
